After losing their cat to cancer in December, Mandy and Alex began looking for another kitty to cuddle. Mandy saw Homer, a 9-year-old blind Manx, at ddfl.org and emailed this photo to Alex. Their hearts went out to him, and Homer is now king of their castle, happily eating Hill’s Science Diet, playing with his catnip banana and pouncing on feet under the bedcovers. Says Mandy, “We love hangin’ with our Homie!” #HillsShelterPets
Charlie is a 100-pound Catahoula mix with a very special job—he helps foster small, fearful shelter dogs, showing them how to be confident and trust humans. Charlie belongs to our volunteer, Alaina, who says all the dogs she brings home to foster instantly become attached to this gentle giant.

We’re often asked why we’re called the Dumb Friends League, and we’d like to set the record straight. No, it’s not because we think animals are dumb. When our organization was founded in 1910, the term "dumb" was widely used to refer to animals because they lacked the power of human speech. While language has evolved so much over the past 106 years, and "dumb" is not generally used with that meaning today, we've kept our name because it has significant recognition in the community, and it represents our commitment to provide a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.
